Talk show host Jerry Springer has donated $200,000 to the new Museum of Broadcast Communications in Chicago, the museum president said Thursday.

“The generous donation from Jerry Springer will help us create entertaining and educational exhibits and will help us build a truly world-class broadcast museum,” said Bruce DuMont, MBC founder and president. “A portion of the Springer donation will also support the museum’s archival preservation efforts and will allow us to expand our educational programs.”

The 70,000-square-foot museum is being erected at State and Kinzie Streets in downtown Chicago and is scheduled to open in late 2006 or early 2007.
